Bellingham SeaFeast is an annual two-day festival on the second weekend of October. Saturday, October 14, 10-5 and Sunday, October 15, 11-5 at Zuanich Park and Fisherman’s Pavilion.
Our mission is to celebrate our:
Maritime Culture & Heritage
Thriving working waterfront
Enjoyment & conservation of our water resources
Commercial fishing & seafood industries
Culinary bounty of our corner of the Pacific Northwest
You will leave with a lasting impression and insider knowledge of our little corner of the Pacific Northwest.
An increasing interest in our maritime and fishing sector—and its significant economic impact—led to the creation of SeaFeast. Originally founded on a three-year seed grant from the City of Bellingham Tourism Commission (travel and tourism tax allotments), this signature festival on Bellingham Bay launched in 2016.
Now, SeaFeast is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, supported both by public and private entities throughout Whatcom County and the Pacific Northwest. The City and Port of Bellingham continue their exciting collaboration to redevelop and to intentionally connect downtown with our thriving working waterfront.
The Bellingham/Whatcom County region has three legacy industries at its roots: Agriculture, Forestry and Wood, and Commercial Fishing/Maritime Trades. Bellingham SeaFeast showcases the maritime sector and its booming economic impact locally, regionally, and internationally.
